Be a Hexie Queen Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop of Be a Hexie Queen blog hop and be sure I want to be one of them!

I'm participating for the very first time in this kind of blog hop. Thank you Madame Sam & Debby for such opportunity. I'm excited and amazed by the wonderful projects I have already seen and I'm thrilled to be part of it. Here's mine.

Simple pouch with leather embellishment.
I've been playing around with leather scraps for a while (you can see some stuff in my blog header). I'm not an expert on leather by any mean. I'm just experimenting amateur. There are no frying ends and it has such a lovely texture. Plus I said it before and I say it again. Leather takes a project up to one level. I love it even though it's not perfect. I had smaller shape on mind but how do you attach leather to fabric? I don't know I just put it on and sew with scotch tape on my foot. That's why I went with decent size.

Isn't that just fascinating how you break the hexagon into three parts and all the sudden it looks like cube?
Little touch of color inside the pouch.
These are my very first hexagons made during the Zakka SAL last year.
Both pouches were made out of linen. The old and new are looking good together.
I also wanted to show you my first quilt. There are all kinds of hexagons and I made it during Festival of Hexagons last year as well. I have few more hexie projects on mind that's for sure.



Thank you for your visit and if you ready for more hop over the next one. Here's a list for you:

  14. The hexie leather accents to the pouch are amazing. I hadn't thought about a hexie being deconstructed into a cube - great idea! I love the dark brown leather against the linen. And, I like the bright colors against the linen, too. The elephant is an adorable plus. Your first hexie quilt is wonderful. Congrats on finishing a great quilt. Thanks for participating and I hope too see you in more hops SOON!
